Abstract

• Persistent solid edema of the face in four healthy young adults seemed to be secondary to preexisting acne vulgaris. Elastic compression and intensive acne therapy were of minimal benefit in resolving the edema. Facial inflammation accompanying acne should be recognized as a rare complication of the acne process.
